We are going to limit our alpha slots to 200,000 as we want to stress test the game with real users, but will not be ready for the full load until we have finished Beta."

Sounds like an MMO type world to me. I am hoping to buy the $250 package next pay day, I really want this game to be made!!

it does sound like the open world is MMO but I'm just hoping that its heavily populated with stuff like ai pirates and factions. and just smaller quests and objectives that are outside the main campaign. Rather than just completely open ended.

They have said though that the Single player will be expanded in the micro updates with more missions/tours of duty so I have high hopes for that as well.

I pledged my $60 today. He is at $800,000 in 6 days, I just hope they make it to the $2 million. This project sounds great. I am waiting to see if X Rebirth ever gets released too... I love the space sims. Nothing more frustrating than trying to match that damn spinning dock in Elite :)

2million only? I'm personally hoping for quite a bit more. strech goals are all at the million marks. And I want more Single Player so I'm personally cheering for the 5+ one at the moment.

But looks like space sims are making a big come back now, what with Valve also rumored to be making one.

Star Citizen by Cloud Imperium Games Corporation — Kickstarter if you are interested in using kickstarter over RSI's website.

Can someone explain to me what the difference is between the $30, $35, and $40 options? I don't really see a difference in what you get for your pledge (same ship, same credits, alpha/beta, "white" citizen card). Is it just scout vs mercenary? If so I wonder if it makes a difference in actual gameplay.

No difference. Get the $30 option. When it sells out, only the $35 and $40 option remain.

While it's close to selling out on the RSI website, there's another 5000 available on kickstarter.

First $2 Million raised and the game is green. Stretch goals are set, $2.5 Mil and a new ship will be added, and so on. Can't wait to see if this comes out before X Rebirth! :)
